Yes! Yes! Yes! This is exactly how I have felt for years about “mushing up” issues of the political scene and our professional association. Turner says it all right here. I remember so well my utter frustration sitting for hours in the Legislative Council debating the ERA—not that I was in any way opposed to the issues, but the helpless frustration of simply being trapped in a situation of inappropriateness. I deeply resented traveling to a distant city and sitting for hours in the debate of an issue to which I would not have chosen to allocate my professional time and dollars—my political time and dollars maybe, but not my professional time and dollars. That was simply not what I went to that convention to do, nor was it why I agreed to serve on the Legislative Council. Statements to this effect at that time were not well received, and we have waded through the social issues many times since. Turner’s comments are a welcome breath of fresh air! Are we thinking differently now? Perhaps a bit more clearly? Thanks so much, Bob Turner!
